If you are reading this, I would suggest you stop right now and go and try to find a bottle of this beer while it is still available!

Tonight I had the privilege of buying a 22 oz. bottle of this beer from Market Beer Company in San Jose for $15; it was served in a 12 oz. tulip glass.

First impressions are wow, this beer is dark, easily as dark as a coal miner's lungs marinated in Guinness. Hints of roasted malt in the nose, rye spice and hops are perfectly balanced; with the roasted flavors becoming more pronounced as the beer warms a little. Nice dry finish, especially for a 9.5% ABV beer.

Once again, Knee Deep knocks it out of the park. If you like Wookey Jack, Sublimely Self Righteous, or Bryeian you will love this beer!

it's not perfect, i just really really really like it. dark as the night time that it's named after, it poured into my tumbler smoothly and left a dark caramel head. ringlets are all i see now as i look down into the empty glass. this smelled stronger than it tasted, the hops were very aromatic in the nose, but not as strong on the tongue while on the way down. only slightly marked down; mine was carbonated a bit more than i wanted, and it could have been just a bit thicker. as drinkable as it is, i plan on trying a few more soon! so glad my local shop started stocking this! get it while it's hot!

Fresh Bomber, no bottle date.

Appearance dark with tan to mocha head, 1 finger.

Smells like a great west coast ipa. Strong citra type smell. Not sure of the exact hops

Taste is really impressive. Similar to hoptologist but with a malty/chocolate background. Dare I say better than Wookey Jack

Highly recommended but make sure it's fresh
